Biography

Action Action is an band from Long Island, New York who combine a aesthetic with a swirling guitar-driven sound reminiscent of The Bolshoi and other bands prominent in the late 1970s and early ’80s.

The lineup consists of:

Mark Thomas Kluepfel (singer/songwriting)
Adam Manning (guitar)
Clarke Foley (bass)
Dan Leo (drums)

In the studio while recording their debut, Don’t Cut Your Fabric To This Year’s Fashion, they employed synths to flesh out their sound and help set themselves apart from the typical rock-based indie act who normally do not experiment beyond basic rock instrumentation.

The band has finished recording their second album, An Army of Shapes Between Wars, which was released on January 24, 2006. The album makes more use of synthesizers and string sections.

    Their singer sang in a ska band in the late 90s. It's actually pretty good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WvEOKQRB7o

    I've only ever heard 'Drug Like', but now I suppose it's time to expand that window.
